Honor at Appomattox

Hope you had a good Fourth of July holiday. We spent the Fourth driving back from Virginia, after a stop in Appomattox the day before.

No battle was fought in Appomattox during the Civil War, but the place is held in high regard in American history because it is the stie where General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant and ended the American conflict.

The events took place in a small farm house that has been reproduced on the original site, based on actual photos of the home. Treating each other with honor was the goal of both sides that Palm Sundy in 1865, and in that they succeeded.
